...and there you have the reason why I haven't been around. Yeah, simple as that.
...okay, so it's a little more complicated in real life. The story goes like this: As anyone living in a pseudo-Christian country such as mine should know, this week is the week of Easter, and while we non-Christians could normally give a dead rat about that, it happens to be that the holidays of majority religions (or, in the case of Denmark well-it-used-to-be-pretty-big-so-let's-just-say-that-it's-still-a-majority-even-though-pretty-few-people-actually-believe-in-it-religions) are also, usually, national holidays. Which means days off. Which means a much welcome chance for me to go home and spend some quality time with friends and family I've been missing like crazy for the last three months.
And that means that there are no comics, because when I finally have the chance, I prefer to actually DO stuff with my friends and family rather than just sit here and draw stuff I could just as well draw in Viborg. I think that explains it better. ^_~
I really wanted to post about this before leaving, and possibly put up another Badly Drawn, but things got ahead of me. Or rather, deadlines for applications to the Animation School my Art School is part of got ahead of me. Sure, I'm not applying, but most of my friends in Viborg are, and I spent most of last week helping them finishing their portfolios (quick tip for anyone ever making a portfolio for anything: Have it finished AT least three days before the deadline. Scanning and arranging 'till 3AM because the deadline is the next day is no fun.) It came to the point where I had to lend out my computer and scanner for two full days, which effectively stopped any plans I had about getting a filler, not to mention a page, done, and once I had it back, I was home and had other things on my mind than posting here. Sorry about that. -_- But, at least, now you know. And, as a screechingly US-patriotic cartoon I never watched as a kid puts it, knowing is half the battle.
As for the future, I'm actually going back home again as early as next weekend because my male cousin (I think I've been ranting about it before, but it really does disturb me that the English language makes no distinction between cousins-who-are-boys and cousins-who-are-girls, especially since the word 'cousin' is almost identical to the Danish term for female cousin, of whom I have none) is turning 18 and for some reason didn't feel like doing it THIS weekend, so I have to go back four days after leaving. In fact, I think the extra journey costs me MORE than the value of the lessons I would miss if I just stayed here for those four days, but well, the value of those lessons can't really be measured in money. Too bad. Realistically speaking, three afternoons (I'll be back in Viborg late Monday night and leaving again Friday afternoon, so it's really only three afternoons there) is not enough time for me to make a comic, so the next update is currently scheduled for MONDAY MARCH 31st. If possible, I'll put up some fillers and Badly Drawns until then, but there is a pretty big possibility that my mom will want to borrow my scanner next week (it's the only scanner in the house), so I might not actually be able to put anything up. Unless I decide to do some Badly Drawns on the computer. Well, they ARE supposed to look like ass...
I'll get back to you once I know whether or not I'll have a scanner for that week. Until then: Have fun, and happy Easter for - both for those who believe in God and those who believe in chocolate eggs.
